Premier Health Group Inc. (PHGI:CSE; PHGRF:OTCQB; 6PH:FSE) announced in a news release that the first phase of integrating CB2 Insights' clinical decision support (CDS) tool into Premier's Juno electronic medical records (EMR) platform is done and was successful.
The purpose of the CDS tool is to help guide medical professionals through evaluating patients for medical cannabis treatment.
How it works is physicians enter into the system specific information about a patient. Then, based on those parameters, the tool provides guidance. It does so by employing proprietary algorithms that leverage "data from more than 500 clinical research papers and trials as well as the anonymized and aggregate data of more than 450,000 patient encounters that CB2 Insights has managed through its clinical arm," the release noted.
"Our mission is to integrate the best CDS tools directly into our Juno EMR platform that will equip physicians to make enhanced health-related decisions," Premier Health CEO Dr. Essam Hamza said in the release.
In the initial phase, medical cannabis-naïve and -savvy physicians used, tested and provided feedback on the applicability and usability of CB2's tool. Physician support was positive.
Both Premier Health and CB2 plan to have the tool fully integrated, available to the 4,600 primary care physicians and healthcare practitioners who use Juno, by Q3/19.[NLINSERT]
